PTA Meetings

The PTA holds a number of board meetings throughout the year, which are open to the public.

Three times a year, the PTA holds meetings for the entire PTA, which are used to vote on board nominations and other democratic items.

We will also send out email reminders to all PTA members as meetings approach.
